I fell and sprang my hamstring but I had and MRI scan buy they only concentrate d on my knee which I had swelling in that went to my ankle, But the front of my thigh up to my groan hurts .so I was wondering if I need another for my thigh or when they did the one for my knee if they could see my thigh?
As mentioned in history about the injury to hamstring and the MRI done for the knee which is the right thing to do. Usually hamstring strain or injury happens at the tendon level and tendon is located close to knee. If any injury happened to hamstring then most commonly the knee MRI is taken.
Now what are the MRI reports suggestive it has to be seen. If you complain pain in the upper thigh and groin this may be the post injury effects as due to injury of the hamstring at the lower 1/3 of the muscles there is a possibility of pain in the groin and upper 1/3 of thigh due to weight distribution.
You may not have to take another MRI at all. take rest and allow the muscle healing to occur. Post which you can contact a physical therapist to help you out regain the strength in the muscles.
In my clinical practice of over 12 years most cases have similar complaints and they do recover well with simple exercises under a guided physical therapist.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
