Japanese Synonym Question

I'm going through a reference on rules for intonation in Japanese, and it seems to make distinctions between 接合, 結合, and 癒合, even though all of them effectively mean to combine or join two parts together. Can anyone offer some insight into the different shades of meaning attached to each word?

Thanks!
