i know a guy that has broken his back several times mainly from motorcycle accidents. he has a bend that is nearly 45 degrees to one side. he deadlifts over 500lbs and strict presses around 275. his doctors told him after his last accident he may never walk again. he was very careful and spent a lot of time slowly building up his trunk and hip strength before hammering heavy on those lifts.
you can call me "ozzie" for short.

that's great that you're pain free, but i'd still get a checkup by a rehab or ortho doc. if nothing else other than to get a baseline from when you started deadlifting..
if you have insurance than it's a no brainer...

So a few words...my personal trainer is NOT someone who earned his credentials over the internet and is all "no pain, no gain" or "it's all you, bro!" He has a degree in kinesiology and, as I said, worked closely with my chiropractor at putting together programs specifically for me and my anatomy. One also realizes how important proper form is. There's small room for error when it comes to back health in the context of scoliosis, and it's very tempting to squeeze out that one extra rep or throw on those few extra pounds. But thanks to the training I received, it's been very easy for me to identify when things "start slipping" and to ease off.
Good luck with your big moves and get some good coaching. Oh, and nothing feels better after those spine-crunching moves than a good decompression, whether it's just hanging from a bar or using an inversion machine. An easy one I love is hanging my torso vertically for a minute from a roman chair. Love it!
