In brief: Low cerebellum.

The tip or bottom of the cerebellum, the posterior brain controlling coordination, may extend be too low, and lie behind the spper spinal cord where it can get pinched.
Chiari is graded according to severity. Wickipedia has a good article on chiari malformation listing the grading.
