There are numerous cases of limping, and each of them requires unique treatment, however non of them is due to lack of amino-acids, unless your dog is not fed well and emaciated. Getting essential amino acids is very important for maintaining body structure and function, but your dog will get them from diet, no need to pour supplements in there, it's much better to use the money on better quality diet for your pet.
These supplements might be somewhat useful for old dogs, since their ability to digest protein from diet is reduced, and so is the amount of amino acids they get. In this case adding amino acids that are just absorbed instead of having to be digested might prove beneficial, though there isn't much science to back this claim up, but even if ineffective this supplements are safe and probably wont cause any harm.
