Hot shoe mount damaged

I wonder if anyone has had experience of a hotshot mount which has been squashed down a little on one side so that it's now too thin to attach a flash, or even the little plastic protector. I so rarely use a flash that it could have happened a while ago, although I don't remember knocking it.

Would it prise back up again with a flat blad screwdriver or similar, or do I risk further damage. Are the metal 'runners' available to buy, or indeed replaceable without sending the whole camera off?
Any advice gratefully received. It's not an urgent repair as I don't often need it, but it's frustrating.
