I sometimes get elbow pain while swimming freestyle, too, although mine is actually caused by my shoulder. Anyway, first I would say to check your form/technique to make sure that's not causing your problem. To treat your elbow, ice it and stretch/strenghen it. I found some exercises on WebMd and checked them out with my physical therapist and they are good exercises to do and they are. Good luck!

I don't have an answer to your actual question but note there are two styles of soreness in the elbow: tennis and golfer's elbow. You may find that a glucosomene suppliment may assist in relieving the joint pain after a week of taking it.

Does anyone know whether swimming the crawl can cause tennis elbow/lateral epicondyle?

It make sense that butterfly and breast strokes would aggravate the external elbow (the bony part), but has anyone heard of the crawl also causing this injury?

I'm discouraged I may have to stop swimming for a while :(

I also do yoga so wondering if that is the culprit.

I swim 3 times a week, I do restorative yoga 2 times a week.

Sad and sore in Seattle.
