Can injury to rotator cuff, twice, cause impinging and bulging?

I recently had two MRI's and EMG's from a work injury. 

The cervical MRI and EMG showed bulging and minimal impinging at C3-4, C4-5, T2-3. Just bulging at C5-6, T3-4. C5 had radiculopathy. 

Question is could two prior rotator cuff injuries have caused bulging and impingement in the cervical area? 

I had two shoulder injuries a long time ago while tugging and lifting a heavy object.

My chiropractor says they sound like older injuries but this latest injury was just the straw that broke the camels back per say.

Just can't help but think the prior injury's from a long time ago may have laid the foundation for this outcome.

Thanks again for the help.
