To see a wheelchair in a dream represents feelings of overall helplessness.
A wheelchair is a symbol of dependency and the reliance on the help of others. The dream may represent feelings of dependency for yourself or others being dependent on you.
Feelings of dependency often arise from what we perceive are our relationships with other people. You may be at a point in your life where you need a lot of help and you find yourself relying on others to get you through. You may feel that you aren’t capable of doing things on your own.
You may also be at a point in your life when you are stressed, overloaded with a lot of work or problems at home. You may feel restricted and unable to do much because of this pressure. Wheelchairs do not necessarily mean bad things, they are manifestations of feelings we have of being unable to do certain things. But it is through this realisation that you can overcome your problems.

Detailed dream interpretation…
If you’ve seen yourself alone and in a wheelchair, this means you have an overall feeling of helplessness. You may feel that you are unable to do something which is important to you. When you see yourself going fast and out of control in a wheelchair, this indicates that you need to seek assistance. You may be encountering a lot of stress and need someone to help you.
If you see yourself being pushed around in a wheelchair, it may mean that you feel you are dependent on the person pushing you. Feelings of helplessness while this is going on will usually confirm that in real life, you think that you are relying too much on that person. However, if you initially feel sad when in a wheelchair and then find relief when someone is there to move you along, that may mean you are seeking help for a problem.
Getting up from a wheelchair means overcoming that dependency. You may have gotten up unaided, or helped someone else up from a wheelchair. This means that you are finding the power to do what you need to do.
It will help to know the people around you and how they relate to you. Your feelings of dependency or being pushed around may be reflections of how you relate with these people.
Seeing someone else in a wheelchair would mean that you may view that person as helpless or emotionally retarded. These may be people close to you or colleagues who are constantly needy. Seeing them get up from a wheelchair may mean you see them as being empowered, especially if you are the one helping them up.
