    Have you made changes to the theme's original files?

    Make a Child Theme
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Then copy all of the files you made changes to (apart from functions.php and style.css) and paste it into your Child Theme directory.

    For your style.css file use a service like Diffchecker to check the difference between your theme's original stylesheet and your modified stylesheet, to find what you've changed. Once you've found your changes, copy all of them and paste them into your Child Theme style.css file (at the bottom).

    If you've modified functions.php, see this http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes#Using_functions.php
