auto accident and spinal injuries

c5-6 mild denerative disk space narrowing broad based disk osteophyte complex effacing the anterior thecal sac without cord compression. there is moderate bilaterl foraminal narrowing. there is no disk herniation. c6-7 "same as above". T12-L1 degenerative disk disease without disk herniation or spinal stenosis. L5-S1 ddd with modic type 2 endplate fatty degenerative signal changes. there is no disk herniation. there is mild bilateral foraminal narrowing. No evident compression fracture or disk herniation.

My question is: How could a car accident "rear ended" cause all this spine/back and neck pain. I did not have any spine/back or neck pain until the accident and the pain has been getting worse as time goes on. I was seeing a chiropractor and he felt he could do nothing more for me. I went in and had this MRI done and we are doing pain management and PT. Did my car accident cause this or bang and RIP my spine so bad it aggravated it. I am at a loss of words and understanding of why I hurt so bad. I have a chronic headache that lasts 15 hrs a day as well.
