In brief: Possibly

Flat feet can cause back pain.
Many times you will have knee or hip pain to along with the back pain if it is coming from your feet. All of your joints are connected. You likely need a good orthotic to support your arch and that may reallign your back. You need to go to a podiatrist and/or a back specialist. I would start with a podiatrist.
