The gradual progression of primary-progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) usually leads to some level of disability. More often than not, PPMS affects mobility in your legs, but that doesn't necessarily mean you'll lose the ability to walk. Many people are able to manage PPMS with exercise and physical therapy. In the later stages of the disease, you may require the assistance of a cane to walk, and in more severe cases a wheelchair may be necessary as well.
