Where is the part of "無理矢理" in your sentence ?
It should beMy mother made me study in spite of myself.

or rather: against my will.

CK, can this sentence be understood as My mother used to make me study? I mean perhaps she made me study several times in the past.

"Made me" means that I was forced to do it which can be said with 無理矢理 in Japanese.

This could be in the recent past like "last night" or it could be in the distant past like "when I was a kid." However, "used to" implies that she doesn't "make me study anymore". This sentence doesn't specifically have that meaning. The "when I was a kid" implies a distant past which also implies my mother unlikely makes me do it anymore, so in that case, it has the "used to" meaning.

But this particular sentence doesn't specify the time or frequency. My question is still the same: do you understand "My mother made me study" as something occured once or several times?

It could mean either just one time like "last night" or many times like "every day last week".
