I was just diagnosed with a hamstring strain from a MRI, I have been dealing with severe pain in my left hip and butt area and down my left leg to my knee. I changed jobs and sit 90% of my 9 hour day. I am not a runner, or do any real exercising.  Can my strain be caused because of my prolonged sitting?

Yes: Sitting for long periods will really aggravate any hamstring injury.

I speak from experience.

After my own hamstring injury, I couldn't sit up in my office chair without pain.

I finally had to take leave from work the pain was so unbearable.

The hamstring is a tricky muscle, because it's involved in stabilizing your core, and if you don't rest it, it WILL GET WORSE...

And you'll have chronic pain for a while if you don't treat it properly now.

PS - if you're hamstring strain was serious enough to show up on an MRI, you should REALLY be seeing a physiotherapist, or rehab specialist.

From what I understand, a hamstring injury doesn't show on an MRI unless it's a grade 2 or 3, which is complete muscle rupture.

Sorry to hear about your injury and suffer.

 

Hamstring is a group of three muscles that run along the back of your thigh. They allow you to bend your leg at the knee.

During a hamstring strain, one or more of these muscles gets stretched too far. The muscles might even start to tear. You're likely to get a hamstring strain during exercise  that involves a lot of running and jumping or sudden stopping and starting.
