Hi,

The trauma can disturbances to your joint and can later develop to arthritis, another possibility is that the accident might have worsened arthritis and lead to symptoms. Anyway consult our orthopaedician and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
