    Most ppl with lower back problems stay away from deadlift. IMHO and my own experience, If you learn to perform the deadlift in perfect, and I stress, perfect form, in no time you'll be enjoying a healthy strong lower back, just be patient and take the time to do it with very very light weights, make sure that you master the lift before you start slowly adding weight. Do not wear a belt, ever, unless you're doing your 1Rep Max effort, and you won't be trying that for now. Keep your reps between 5 and 7, even if it's light, once you start adding more reps you start losing your good form. Always lead with your shoulders and use your legs in the first quarter of the range of motion, arch your back and keep it tight at all times, after you finish, lower the barbell with good control and don't get slopy or lose concentration, most ppl when they finish, hunch their backs and lower the weights carelessly, once again keep your trunk straight and use your legs, almost like squating. There are also special equipments in some gyms that you can use to do back extensions, and you don't have to use any weights, you can improvise using the "donkey calf machine" if you haven't done it before you can find someone in the gym willing to help you, specially powerlifters, they know all those tricks (I'm a powerlifter, eh, ..novice)

    No doubt deadlift works well. Try some hyperextensions.

    woah, wait a minute guys.

    Primetime, what kind of back pain do you have? Is it severe? Is it constant? Do you have shooting pain going down your leg?

    If it is bad, I will give you some exercises you can do to rehab and strengthen your back that are all physical therapy related.
