Default Leg strength without squats

I have been tearing up my back lately. I think I may have sciatica and/or a herniated disc in my back. I can't possibly do any squats. Even with an empty bar the pain is like lightning down my leg and my knees buckle immediately. I can do leg presses no problem. Is that a good substitute? I'm really trying to develop leg strength with 5 x 5 training but I can't possibly do squats right now.
