EXCI 206 Musculoskeletal system and joints Page 7 1. Joints allow movement, which is executed by our muscles. They also bear the weight of the body parts they join. They also absorb shock by means of the cushioning effect of the fluid within the joint cavity. Joints also find a balance between stability and mobility: they stabilize excessive motion. 2. The place of juncture between two or more bones is called a joint. Soft tissue is what allows the bones to be joined together. There are 2 types of junctures: simple joint and compound joint. The term simple joint refers to the juncture of only two bones whereas compound joint refers to three or more bones.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
