"The" or possessive adjective for part of the body?

Hello, teachers!

Please judge which opinion is correct!

- Uncle patted me on [the, my] shoulder.

As to this sentence, some people say that the definite article is correct, some say that the possessive is correct, and some say that both are correct. Would you please tell me which opinion I should follow? If both are correct, which is preferred?

Thank you very much.
Enjoy the spring wildflowers
Best Regards.
