Absolut 3 is an herbal compound, the efficacy of which is not clinically proven. Escitalopram belongs to SSRI group of drugs used in the treatment of Depression. So, I do not think both these are the right treatment for neck pain.

Yes, ultrasonic massage is one of the treatment modalities for neck pain and is right.

Get well soon.
