The spinal cord position varies with changes in posture.
The spinal cord naturally moves when a person changes position
Djikstra E
The spinal cord moves within the vertebral column relative to a body’s posture or position. As can be seen on the above cross-section views, the distance (d) between the back of the spine where the electrode is located and the spinal cord varies according to position. The spinal cord is closer to the electrode when lying down, and further away when in the prone position, as compared to standing.
