HIp: Spondylothesis is the forward movement of one vertbrae over another. This can be a cause for sciatica and would explain the pain down the right hip and leg. Sounds like you had a specific injury to your hamstring. The problems together would be more painful. If further concerns consider an online consult or notify your regular provider.
