Your shock is a serviceable component of your bike, much like your engine.
The oil in your shock breaks down with use, loosing its ability to control your suspension.
You become familiar with this as it's happening while you ride and you don't realise until the shock is serviced. If you notice a difference once serviced you have left it too long.
As most modern shock absorbers are controlling a large single spring they require quite strong dampening to control its movement. This dampening creates a lot of heat, in turn the heat cycle's over time cause the oil to break down. As the oil breaks down, the dampening gets weaker and starts to give you less of a controlled feeling from the rear end of your bike.
Also the loss in lubrication quality, promotes wear on the moving parts inside your shock.
