For two episodes of season 1, a character is restrained by a bike lock around his neck that locks around a pole behind him. He is unable to move his head forward at all. In “Buyout”, a character is zip-tied to a radiator at the wrist and left alone. He quickly escapes. Nearing the end of season 5, a character is kept in an underground cage chained at the wrists and ankles. When he is out of the cage, there is a chain from his back to the ceiling that only allows him to walk back and forth.

Like the other person said, there's the body tied up, but you'll also want to avoid watching just after the evil spirit stops screaming at Ellie in the elevator, because it escalates things physically after that.
