There is no need of "although" here.

What can be avoided? Cramps....

Cramps is the subject, and " in a swimmer's legs or feet caused by swimming" is the modifier.

B has the correct modifier usage.

When you read the statement.... you must immediately ask... What can be avoided? Swimming/legs/cramps/feet

I think without doubt it is cramps. Therefore Cramps are the subject, and the modifier should only modify Cramps.

B Changes Tense
+1 for C , because "cramps in a swimmer's legs or feet" is a Noun Idea for this "which can modify either Feet or Cramps"
What is OA?
