Non-displaced labral tear with chondrolabral separation after a fall. History of osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease. What is the reason for the pain in the hip?

I was just injured in a slip and fall injury in my shower. I went in for an MRI and I didn t have any broken bones or fractures . However, I did have a nondisplaced labral tear with chondrolabral separation which may extend into the superior labrum. I also have osteoarthritis and degenarative disc disease. However, I m have a lot of pain in my left hip now more often than usual. I would like to know if the labral tear was caused by the slip and fall or my arthritis.

Below mentioned are most likely causes for labrum tear.
1) Falling on an outstretched arm
2) A direct blow to the shoulder
3) A sudden pull, such as when trying to lift a heavy object
4) A violent overhead reach, such as when trying to stop a fall or slide.

So the labral tear you had is because of the slip and fall rather then arthritis.
