Do you hang on your hamstrings, crank your head up, and arch your back during your deadlift? These are all unstable positions in the deadlift. You need to create stability and torque through a braced neutral spine (with natural/normal lumbar curve), knees aligned over the outside edge of the feet, and a long back the neck (have you heard this cue before?) Create torque and protect your spine.
