I recommend the Mattes Method. You don't hold the stretches for long, but it is very effective. Kim Orloff has videos that she made. I'm pretty sure she would mail them to you. http://www.kimortloff.com/Flexibility.html
Last year, I made the commitment to run a half marathon with the Leukemia & Lymphoma's Society Team in Training progam. I'm a skater, not a runner, and I also have a pretty wicked case of scoliosis (curved spine). I immediately had IT band trouble when I tried to run. I stretched almost every day and was able to complete the half marathon even though my chiropractor said that biomechanically I shouldn't be able to run. : ) Now I'm a much better skater because of the stretching!
