Well, in theory you could of course increase the force constant 
significantly, but that might disrupt other parts of the structure.

An easier solution would probably be to add distance restraints between 
arbitrary atoms (e.g. atom 1 and atom 4 in a dihedral), just like you do 
for NMR restraints!
