bending , twisting and hammering should be a last resort....pull the stricker out,see if it gets any better then loosen the bolts on the door side of the hinge (with the stricker out)see if you can wiggle it back to a good fit.some times people back up with the door open and get it caught up on something (like a snowbank) and bend the hinges.....if it wont fit the jamb without the stricker in and the hinges loose... then the door is bent. if it fits the jamb until you tighten hinges... the hinges are bent...of coarse it might be both you should really have a pro look at it and try adjusting it before twisting and bending the door...plus a pro will have the door bending bar thats made for twisting the doors....
