In brief: Water Rehabilitation
Water rehabilitation is a good form of therapy because it is generally non-weightbearing.
The water provides good resistance without putting additional stress on the injured body part.

In brief: Great therapy but...
Water fitness is a great form of therapy for running injuries, but it also depends upon the type of injury.
You probably should be seeing a physical therapist to help and recommend proper exercises, etc. A range-of-motion massage therapist is also an excellent option.

In brief: Targeted P.T.
Depending on the injury and anticipated recovery time, specific hydrotherapy recommendations from a licensed physical therapist can be invaluable.
In conjunction with other types of treatment (rest, passive/active exercise, analgesics, bracing) whirlpool baths can help quite a bit.
