Re-anchoring brick collumns

In replacing the patio cover I noticed that three of my brick collumns will rock to and fro if I push on them. They are approx 7 feet tall, 10" by 20" wide and deep. The mortar has broken about 2-4 bricks up from the ground. Is there some type of glue, filler, mortar that I can push into the cracks as I lean the collumns to create space? Something that will seal the seam and make the collumns solid again? If the collumns were hollow in the middle I could put a few rebars down the center and fill with cement, but they are solid all the way through. Any help is appreciated.

The only thing that will make them solid again is a rebuild
