CHECK THE PLASTIC ROCKERS....

Your bow is probably o.k. but some of bows like Bowtech, PSE and Mathews actually use plastic "rockers" under the limbs. When the bows are dry fired the plastic can break, bend or move around, allowing the limb to migrate in the pocket. The rockers are a very important part of the bow, as they hold the limbs in place with respect to the riser. I would look closely at the limb/riser connection and look for discrepancies, or better yet, take the bow apart and check the internal components for wear or breakage.

Take it apart!

Check the wheels and axles with a straightedge to make sure they are not bent. Check your limbs for cracks. I doubt your strings and or cables are damaged, but now may be a good time to rerig anyhow, just for peace of mind and just in case!
