DEADLIFT is one of those exercises that require EXTREME caution when performing. The MOST COOMON mistake I see with some people is that they use VERY HEAVY WEIGHTS. By that I mean weights that seem TOO HEAVY for them from the ONSET (first rep). Adding to that they usually JERK or BOUNCE the weight to generate MOMENTUM that could be very damaging to the LUMBAR area (lower back). Anyway the PROPER way to do it is to first choose a proper weight and do the movement SLOWLY and with STRICT form. Second you must experiment on your FOOT STANCE(closer or wider stance) and GRIP WIDTH (closer or wider grip)base on your individual STRUCTURAL uniqueness as those could significantly influence proper execution. PEACE.

I started using a trap bar and that solved my pain and form issues. dealift went from something I hated to something I loved

I am saying try the trap bar (that is the alternative) and you might not have use a completely different exercise. In my opinion there is no comparable subsitute for deadlifts.
