I would try loosening the truss rod. That is a steel rod that runs the length of the neck. Look into the sound hole toward the neck and you will see a receptacle for a hex wrench. If you don’t see anything there, look for a removable plate on the head of the guitar (where the tuning pegs are)and under it you will see a nut on a rod. Loosen it and the neck should straighten out.
