    If the stretcher bars are severely warped and twisted the only thing to do is take it off carefully and stretch it on a new set of bars.

    If it is minor a strong picture frame will probably balance it out.

    There is a way to fix the frame temporarily while on the wall. I partially drive screws into the inside of the frame at points where the frame sticks out from the wall, then a nail or something similar pounded or drilled into the wall at the same point where the screws are located. I then wrap wire around the screw in the frame and loop the other end around the head of the nail or whatever it is I've put into the wall, pulling on the wire to close the gap between wall and frame. I finish by wrapping the wire around the nail and clipping the excess wire.
