Thank you for posting your query.
Based on the nature of injury, your symptoms are unlikely to be due to any internal spinal cord damage.
The injury seems to be superficial and you need not worry.
The symptoms should settle down on its own in a few days.
Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
