Osgood schlatters is due to trauma from high impact sports.
It is not an autoimmune disease. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that has no correlation with osgood schlatters. Your chance of developing rheumatoid arthritis is no higher than that of the general population. Best wishes and not to worry.
