Question Deadlift prep & injury preventtion

Hi,

I've been doing deadlifts for a while now, but am not able to go really heavy without injuring my lower back (L5). Any injury to my L5 puts me on the shelf for a week, and then another 1-2 weeks before I can go to previous weights in the deadlift and other movements.

Any recommendations on how to improve my deadlift while reducing the risk of injury? Should I wear a back belt for all deadlifts? Any particular exercises to strengthen my back?

Thanks in advance,
Miki.
