Simulation, apply force for a limited distance only?

I am doing a simulation on a part that is designed to deform very slightly. So when I look at the simulation results, I am seeing high stresses, but the part is deflecting ten times as far as it would actually be moved, meaning the actuator would not push it nearly as far as the simulation is showing it deform. So my stresses would be much less due to the far less deflection that the part will see in the real world. Is there a way to apply a force only through a specified distance?
