Default Does hitting the heavybag eventually cause arthritis?

I can't find much information on this, but I was told that Karate guys who punch through bricks end up with arthritic hands.

Anybody have any info about this?

Wikipedia is reliable, everything gets checked and there are references at the bottom. If something doesn't seem legit then there will be a box at the top explaining the issues.
You think an anecdote is evidence?

It's going to be different for everybody. Do you have the same hands as everyone else? Do they hit the bag as often as you? Do they hit it with as much force? Do you have the exact same diet?
Would you even have any idea how to interpret a scientific study? I seriously ****ing doubt it

Oh but weights are bad for everybody as well

You're a neurotic dumb ****er aren't ya?

lol....anecdotal evidence is the complete opposite of scientific evidence.
Anecdotal evidence is this.....there are 20 year old boxers lined up around the building at arthritis therapy clinics on a daily basis.

For real though, I am 37 years old, and only had gout in the balls of my feet. Since I began boxing, my thumb joints and index finger joints have become inflamed and swollen.
That's not scientific or anecdotal, but that's one poster's personal experience.

I believe a few of us know the answer, but since you've already stated you don't believe in scientific findings why would what we say matter to you?

Also, your attitude is appalling. If you ask nicely for an answer instead of demanding one maybe people would help you out.

One more thing... LIFT WEIGHTS, BITCH!!!
