Bent sliding glass door frame

I have a sliding glass door that I recently replace and worked well until a friend fell into it. The glass did not break however the frame bent (inside looking out) in a convex fashion. Without replacing the whole frame, is there a way to straighten it out without disassembling it?

Thanks in advance!

Take door out of guides and sandwich it between two pieces of 3/4" plywood. Lay 2X4 over ply and hold one under ply. Clamp with clamps and tighten them a little at a time. You should be able to get the bow out of door frame.

Willing to bet that just not going to happen.
