Biological Therapy in psychiatry is as old as antiquity .
It was believed that insanity was the product of evil and personal wrong doings, and as such restraint with chains and corporal punishments were seen as remedies. Much later, spinning chairs were used to produce general shock to the system and interrupt the morbid preoccupation of the patient.
Treatment has however improved over the years to the current day therapeutic approach.
It entails the use of medications and other forms of physical treatment in the management of mental health conditions, with uses and side effects of the various treatment modality.
