My question is, is there another excersize, or rather a safer way to do Deadlifts to avoid further injury to my lower back. Reason being, I had gotten into a car accident a year ago and fractured a lumbar vertabrae. My back hasnt been the same since and Deadlifts use to, USE to, be a major component in my excersize, specifically during bulking season... Now, I ask this because the last time I had attempted Deadlifts I was doing ok until one fateful day, lets just say for about a week I couldnt stand up str8... AND I know that Deadlifts are an excersize that is significant in gaining muscle mass... So help me out folks... Plz excuse me if this doesnt make any sense... Im incredibly drained and tired from rl ****...

Oh yeah, another reason why I am asking this is because most routines that I wish to try that I have seen on these forums require Deadlifts and or many other movements which might spark some back pain...
Any help is appreciated.
