My wife just recently started using Biotest's circumin for a pretty gnarly ankle injury and swears by it. I've tried a pill or 2 and it appears to help... but I can't say for certain personally. I tried HMB years ago - I had a coach that swore by it for strength/muscle gain, but it was extremely expensive (not sure if it still is) and never really worked on a performance level for me... never noticed anything (or thought about it) from an injury management perspective though - let me know if it works for you.
