Q.I Have A Calamondin Plant That Was Damaged By The Cold.

I live in South Carolina and I have a Calamondin tree that was damaged by the cold. It was wrapped in burlap and a plastic bag when it got cold. It still has green on the bottom but the top is like bleached out. Can I trim it back now so it will bloom again. Thank you.
