Can you straighten a bent neck

This is more for my knowledge. But can you straighten out a bent neck? Not a warped or twisted one but just one that has a bow to it towards either the front or back of a guitar.

I know you can make small movements by adjusting the truss rod but how far can you go? Is it just a simple truss rod adjustment?

How much can you get it to straighten out?

Does it depend on the neck?

If there is another post on this please send me the link I did a search but didn't see this (of course sometimes I am blind).
