    Elbow Pain

    I have recently resumed heavy training mileage in anticipation of some long distance swims this summer. I have moderate shoulder pain but the real problem I am having is pain associated with my elbow. I breathe to my left and the pain is with the right elbow.

    Does anyone have experience with that same type of pain. Any recommendations on dryland exercises?

    Possible medial epicondylitis from repetitive flexion and pronation during freestyle pull. Other than bands that displace the effective insertion site of tendon, motrin, rest, I don't know of anything else. Stewart Carrol in Texas had surgery but don't know how it affected him or if he would recommend.

    I get this whenever I up my mileage too drastically. Only thing that works for me is motrin & acetominophin and I wear one of those snuggly black neoprene sleeves. I've also got arthritis in this elbow, so I've got that working against me too.
