If necessary in later stages of training, face pulls/hyper-extensions/power cleans are all beneficial for the extra stimulus.

As mentioned by an earlier poster, you will need to specify what type of back problems exactly that guy man has. A Doctor could only prescribe treatment for his back and a physical therapist recovery.
Said it all right there. Good post.
