Yes thats about all there is to it, adjust in small steps and tap on the barrel of the scope with a screw driver handle (light taps) after each adjustment before firing the gun.

It doesn't sound like anything's broken, it sounds like the scope has shifted in the rings, as you said "they are not straight up and down anymore", which won't effect your accuracy at short ranges, but if there's long ranges (more than 100 yards) you're going to be off some.
You can loosen the ring screws until the scope will turn, either 2 or 4 screws that hold the two halves of the ring together. There are numerous tools to help you align the crosshairs, but when I do this job I just square-up the reticle (crosshairs) by looking at the center of the reticles and let your eye follow the bottom crosshair down and make sure it is centered on the back of the bolt or receiver. If you need help doing this job, take it to your local gunsmith, he'll be able to square these up for you and boresight it.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

A quick and easy way to bore sight your rifle, if it is bolt action only, or an AR, mount the rifle in a cardboard box with cutouts so it will sit without tipping, remove the bolt and sight down the bore at a target 100 yards away, a mail box, or the corner of a building, make sure the rifle doesn't move, then peek through the scope, it should be seeing the same target your bore is seeing, if not, adjust your scope to it, if it won't travel that far, shim the front with pieces of 35 mm film. then check it again, if you can get it to stay there, it will put your bullet on paper at 100 yards.
