20 yr. old home, pvc plumbing. Shower with "winner" mixing valve and diverter, behind a bath/shower single piece unit. Just lately when I turn the shower on or adjust the temp. the whole unit (from shower head to diverter) moves laterally, just less than an inch. Otherwise everything else is normal.

So evidently whatever fastens this portion of piping to a solid area (probably the stud) has come loose. I really don't want to remove the bath/shower shell on one side or the built-in bookcases and drywall on the other side of this unit in order to reinstall whatever braces this unit. But I also don't like that the thing moves; first because it just can't be very good for the piping, and because I'm certain that some water gets behind the shielding in the shower.

Any advice?
