Immobilization for some people, such as those in traction, immobilization will require long periods of bed-rest. Lying in one position in bed for an extended period of time can result in sores on the skin (decubitus ulcers), skin infections and become at risk for buildup of fluid in the lungs or even pneumonia. Urinary infections can also result of extended bed-rest, as can issues with incontinence and constipation. People who have casts, splints or braces will generally spend several weeks not using the affect body part. This lack of use can result in decreased muscle tone and shrinkage of the muscle (atrophy). Much of this loss can usually be regained after the injury has healed. The paralyzed or chronic immobile, however, must deal with the effects long term. Immobility for any length of time can also cause psychological stress. Any individual restricted to a bed with a traction device or otherwise may become frustrated, bored, and even depressed, irritable and withdrawn.
