Thank you. I'm a 65 yr. old Vet. I fractured my right clavicle 3x, 6 mo. (greenstick, A/C joint) 4 yrs. (clean and again at 14 yrs. (clean ) During basic training I fell on my right shoulder, pulled something lifting someone, and injured it again by firing an M14 rifle with a recoil of 14.7 ft lbs of recoil 200 to 300 times in one week. My contention is these injuries can lead to osteoarthritis.
Can this happen
