This is one of those issues you will find yourself having to work around throughout your lifting career. Don't be afraid to look at alternatives. I rotate the style of squats I do, as extended back squats inevitably catch up to me. Make use of front squats, zerchers, BB hacks, Jeffersons and belt squats as well as the lunge variations. I do mostly rack pulls as I have found conventional deads bother my back more. Some find that sumo deads are easier on the back. You might also look into a trap bar, I know I am, as this too allows you to keep a straighter back. Consider chest supported back work also. There are ways to work around this type injury, you just have to be smart about it.
