With deadlifts make sure your form is good, otherwise you'll just hurt your back more, and don't start doing them until you're sure your back is 100% fine. Deadlifts are a FANTASTIC exercise, but also super intense, and you really need to make sure you're doing them properly. A great book that really hammers home proper deadlift form (as well as proper form for bench press, standing press, squats and power cleans) is "Starting Strength" by Mark Rippetoe, it's basically my weightlifting bible:
