I know it's extremely difficult to deal with a back injury. I was completely dubious at first myself when it was recommended that I rehab it. I actually started working legs by doing leg press. That was step one for me. It will actually strengthen your back a little. But not enough to do heavy squats. Become educated on how to strengthen your back and then you'll have the power to do so. It takes time, but if you stay dedicated to it then you'll eventually find that it's worthwhile.
I like Hammer Strength machines also. It's really the only thing that allowed me to continue training over the past month or two. I have a bad shoulder and it made a world of difference for me. I'm gradually shifting away from the HS machines now, but I think they're fine to supplement your normal routine with.

Ah the hell with it you guys have convinced me I never was a sissy im going to start dead lifting again on Monday with a few sets in my leg workout if im careful they should strengthen my lower back and eventually ill be able to squat again.
After a lot of thought i decided that hitting a muscle once per week is not enough I think its going to the opposite extreme from over training so last Monday I started this hitting a muscle group twice in two weeks after the first week I feel great.
Monday - Shoulders, Chest, Triceps.
Wednesday - Legs, Back , Biceps.
Friday - Shoulders, Chest, Triceps.
Monday - Legs, Back , Biceps.
Wednesday - Shoulders, Chest, Triceps.
Friday - Legs, Back , Biceps.
Then repeat cycle
