    If there is no frame damage like cracks or string holes that are caving in, then you might be able to help by restringing. String it on the high end of the tension range after mounting it in a machine with a good mounting system, and using the mounts to press it back into shape as best you can. Just be careful, and inspect it thoroughly before hand. It is likely to break if the frame is damaged at all.

    My guess is that the graphite/resin matrix has been damaged on that side; kind of like slightly crumpling an aluminum can. I doubt that restringing will help it, but AFAIK that's all you can do to try to get it to return to its normal shape.
