Although, it's mostly common in boys, it can be found in girls.  Osgood-Schlatter disease is a disease where a bone becomes inflammed because of either the cartilage or tendon at the top of the shin becomes inflammed. It occurs where the shin attaches to the knee cap which causes this disease to be very painful. Tendonitis is a disorder where tendon's become inflammed. This is a very common sports injury and it occurs when a tendon is over excercised. It can be treated with physical therapy and stretching.
