Chris,
"(PTx explained that injury mechanism was arching back under load)". Most of the time problems from heavy deadlifting are from back bowing into "flexed" position. Most of the arching injuries I have been made aware of are from push pressing overhead pressing. Is this the case?

The biggest advice I can give is do your best to

1-Maintain a neutral back position, somewhere between flexion and extension.

2-Strengthen your midsection

3-Gradual progression

4-In my experience people with back injuries who avoid "rebuilding the area" NEVER RECOVER
