How do you get flat feet as a child?

Most of the time if you question the family there is some family history of flat feet. Often these people have knee or hip or back pain at an early age. Different types of foot pain can develop. These include pain in the heels, on the balls of the foot or inside or outside of the ankles. It is usually hereditary. Rarely, some injury can play a roll.
