In brief: It is possible?
If the injury you have cause weakness of muscles that lead to more stress on the joints which been effected, that will to arthritis.
Another factor when cause you to apply more load on certain joints than other to avoid the aggravations of the neck injury that also do that , so indirectly both cases lead to arthritis in other site of the body.
