[phenixbb] helix deformed during refinement in phenix

Dear All,
            I am using phenix to refine a long helix of about 120 residues in a complex structure, but in course of refinement the helix becoming distorted from helical geometry. As a result when I am displaying the refined structure in pymol as cartoon one long helix showed 3/4 discontinuous helices in a single chain. Is there any way to constrain or restrain the helix during refinement, so that refinement process can maintain the helical geometry? Any suggestion is well appreciated. 
With regards...
