There are medications that can be prescribed by a Medical Doctor to help with the symptoms of migraine headaches and these can be very effective. What I find though is that even with this approach as it is sometimes necessary, it's a good idea to see if the pattern of migraines and or headaches can be alleviated and prevented. It could be that the medication will alleviate the symptoms, and the underlying cause may still be present.
In my 20 years as a Chiropractor, treating migraine and headache symptoms is something I have always had a special interest in. Human function and in particular nervous system function can be fascinating when it comes to finding the possible cause of these symptoms. What Chiropractic care does is provide an opportunity to very gently release what we call a subluxation or lock for want of a better term that may be present in a joint. What often occurs with these locks, that you may or may not even know are present is that they inhibit nerve flow. Nerve flow is essential for healthy functioning of your nervous system. The cause of migraines is so varied and can be triggered by a number of causes. If we can find the underlying cause and can treat in non-invasively with Chiropactic care which we frequently do, then the symptoms may go away and medication may not be needed.
I'm not sure what investigations you have undertaken to look into your son's health concern, however, care in some form would be a good idea. I am always very conservative and work closely with General Medical Practitioners, as I feel it is always important to be thorough in treating migraines. If the symptoms do continue you may want to consider Chiropractic care or a visit to your GP.
